Archie Bradley made his first start at the AAA level after 3 starts in High A Visalia and the results were good. He didn't give up any runs but left with one out in the 5th after getting to 94 pitches having allowed 5 hits and 3 walks while striking out 3. Good results but lots of pitches and men on base.
